    A few things that I have done and would suggest are remove the EGR and AIR systems. Cleans up the engine bay quite a bit.

    I would also suggest for appereance sakes go with some color. I am using red for most of my stuff. Though since my car is blue I can get away with black as well

    A few things that are nice to have and that will help make things look a bit better would be a nice catch can (which is nice to have anyways and even you an install it in a short amount of time ) and some MSD wires.

    You can also put shiney stuff all over the engine bay, but for me those are not that practical, and beyond vavle covers I find that it can be overdone, but I don't like to have to wear sunglasses whenever I open the hood in the sun.

    I think FRC's and removing all the EGR and air stuff helps a ton

    Here it is fixed.






    And yes I make these myself. As for pricing I will have to discuss with my partner (ts|s). This one was made from a scrap piece that I had in the shop for awhile. Pricing will come very soon. IF we can get a group to buy some that would be best.
